The Chicago White Sox have released their schedule for the 2021 season and there are some dates on there to look forward to.
The Chicago White Sox and all of Major League Baseball have announced their 2021 schedules. There are some fun dates that are there and hopefully, we are a little bit closer to being past the COVID-19 pandemic by then. The cool thing about this schedule is that it is a bit like an expanded version of this 2020 60-game slate they are about to play. It is the same interleague teams with the other ten American League teams intertwined in there.
The White Sox are starting the season with seven games on the West Coast. They will play the Los Angeles Angels in Anaheim on April 1st to open a season against them for the first time since 1993. After that four-game set, they will head to Seattle to play the Seattle Mariners for three. Then, they will return to Chicago for their home opener against the Kansas City Royals on April 8th. That will begin an eight-day, seven-game homestand for the Sox.
As mentioned before, the NL Central will be their interleague division in 2021. They will play the Chicago Cubs, Cincinnati Reds, Pittsburgh Pirates, Milwaukee Brewers, and St. Louis Cardinals. Of course, the big one there is the Cubs. It will be the first time in seven years that they play the Cubs six times in back to back years. With the new interleague play rules that only happens when the White Sox play the entire NL Central Division. The cool thing about it is that there are two weekend series’ vs the Cubs which always makes them more fun to attend.
It is going to be fun getting back to the rest of the American League as well. Seeing friends like the Boston Red Sox, New York Yankees, and Texas Rangers amongst others is always a treat. It is also going to be fun having just a normal 162 game baseball schedule again. We have to get through this weird 60-game slate first which should be fun but the White Sox should be really good in 2021 and we can’t wait.
